      Nancy,
      I don't know what the relationship was back then between the given names BERTHA and BARBARA(with its variant spellings).
      I do know that my paternal grandmother was listing on the passenger manifest(1903) as BARBARA TARTAL, but she was commonly known after this as BERTHA. The subject came up a few months ago, I think on the Delphia site, and at least a few posted about some connection in their ancestors' given names.

      TOM
